iFixit has been busy once again with their screwdriver set and has this week taken apart the new Pebble smartwatch which raised over $10 million in its successful Kickstarter campaign, in the middle of 2012.
The Pebble smartwatch teardown is the first of its kind to be dismantled by iFixit for all to see so the metrics for the Pebble smartwtch can’t be compared to any other device as yet.
However iFixit did reveal that the inaccessible battery limits the life of the Pebble smartwatch to an estimated 6-10 years, and its also impossible to open the devices without destroying it or at least compromising its waterproofing, making internal repairs infeasible. But the Pebble smartwatch strap is a standard size and is easily replaceable if needed.
